Subject: [PATCH v2] kmemleak: add scheduling point to kmemleak_scan

kmemleak_scan will scan struct page for each node and it can be really
large and resulting in a soft lockup. We have seen a soft lockup when do
scan while compile kernel:

Fix this by adding cond_resched every MAX_SCAN_SIZE.

v2:
  * call cond_resched() every MAX_SCAN_SIZE for consistency with the other places
  * fix the subject of the patch. - Both per Catalin
